Norman Seeff’s shoot with husband-and-wife R&B duo Ike and Tina Turner was among the most memorable of his career. As his first filmed session, the footage was riveting. “They performed an amazing version of ‘Nutbush City Limits’ right there in my studio. There was incredible energy and vitality between them.” He recalls that the couple’s contrasting personalities made their interactions all the more compelling. “Tina was a whirlwind of freedom and spontaneity,” he says. “She was teasing Ike, trying to get him to loosen up, but there was an edge about it. It was as if she was challenging him just a bit. It felt almost dangerous but at the same time ecstatically creative.” Ike on the other hand was reserved and controlled. “He was very charismatic. He had a regal, majestic quality about him, and a tremendous sense of who he was.”
